Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, there really is a World Quidditch Cup and it just happened!!! Last weekend!!
How could I not know about this?
I mean, I once refereed a Quidditch game. We bought the brooms at the dollar store, used a big ball for the quaffle and flat-ish balls for the bludgers. And for the Golden Snitch, we had a yellow balloon that we released when one of our prefects yelled, "GOLDEN SNITCH!" and ran through the field.
Okay, so it was at Cali's eight birthday...and it was nowhere near as rough as some of the video footage I've seen. But the truth is that even though these college boys didn't inform me of their Quidditch Cup, I am still totally jazzed.
I mean, I live in a world where people play Quidditch.
Earth just became a tad cooler.
